Education is the best asset of a nation.Educating a girl is one of the best investments her family, community, and country can make. Educating a girl in particular can kick-start a virtuous circle of development. Women's empowerment is essential for economic development, growth, and poverty reduction not only because of the income it generates, but also because it helps to break the vicious cycle of poverty. With this vision NCWEB started by Delhi University is an endeavor to contribute to Higher Education not only by enabling girlstudents to get a degree in relevant subjects but also inculcate in them the ability to think creatively and to possess good communication skills.Programs such "BetiBachaoBetiPadhao" would only be successful when institutes such as NCWEB blossoms fully.

In this neo-age of 100% cut-offs class room crunch, gender discrimination, NCWEB is a welcome initiative and a most satisfactory way to attain a degree from the prestigious Delhi University.
